Sorry, I Don’t Speak Broke

One hundred and fifty-nine dollars. That's how much Apple AirPods cost. It may seem like a lot, but I can assure you they’re worth it.
There are many benefits to having AirPods. For example, if you have an iPhone 7 or newer you can charge your phone and listen to music through your AirPods at the same time. You can also join the cool AirPod user group that everyone acknowledges but never talks about.
When spending that much money on a device, you are more than likely to get a great quality product. The wireless earbuds come with a 5-hour battery life, a charging case with a 24-hour battery life, and a lightning cable that charges the charging case.
The Apple AirPods include many great features like infrared sensors that detect when the earbuds are in your ears so they play when you’re ready to listen. You’re also able to choose two features for your right and left Airpod. There's a special chip called the Apple W1 is hidden inside the AirPods and can detect when you’re speaking. This chip filters out background noise so that the Airpods can focus on what you’re saying. And the newest control, Live Listening, allows you to eavesdrop on conversations by leaving your phone in a room and taking your AirPods with you.
Setting up AirPods is a simple process; you open the charging case with the listening devices inside, and a notification pops up on your phone asking if you would like to connect the two together. After that's done, you can enjoy jamming out to your favorite tunes.
Apple has a reputation for making new devices that are even better than the previous products they released. Currently, you are able to talk to siri while using your Airpods without speaking into your phone, so, who knows what the future holds for Apple’s AirPods.
